West Fens break-ins

Residents in the West Fens neighborhood should be aware of a recent pattern of apartment break-ins in the area (view incident list.)This area has been somewhat active throughout the year but there has been a recent localized string of burglaries on Queensberry Street, Peterborough Street and Park Drive. The breaks follow a general pattern. In many cases, the suspect enters the residence through a window located off of the fire-escape in the rear of the building. The suspect usually steals smaller items and does not ransack the apartment. Items typically stolen are iPods, laptops, and jewelry. Residents are advised to secure windows that lead to fire escapes and to call 911 if they observe suspicious activity.
